ActionTaskic Goes Open Source Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
This is one of those reasons why OmniFocus needs to hurry up and get on the market.

Interesting... you know, if OmniFocus wants to differentiate, all they have to do is develop tagging contexts. There is no task management software out there that does this... save maybe Outlook. Ok... no task management software out there for the mac...

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!

Please, please allow multiple contexts per item.
 
I have tried Actiontastic and it is very far from being a good GTD program. Not criticizing, since itís merely 0.9.3, but my guess is that OmniFocusí first release will already be superior to Actiontastic.
I actually prefer to wait than to use software that is incomplete, as a couple of GTD programs are.

How so? (Not being confrontational, not even disagreeing. I'd just like to hear your take on it.)

Oops, thatís another Bob :D

Hereís what I didnít like:
Itís a beta. It has bugs. One of the key aspects of a GTD system is trustworthiness. I would not trust Actiontastic with my tasks, agendas, etc. At least not yet.

It also lacks some GTD features. For example, I found no option to deal with Delegated items or Waiting For items. These two things are essential to me.

For me the best GTD software Iíve used is ThinkingRock, and version 2 should be available soon. Some people -myself included- are not thrilled about its interface, but in terms of using it to get things done it has been extremely useful.

When I started using it I requested some features. I think they were for reporting purposes. The next release included those features, as well as many others from other users. It has steadily evolved into a very nice program, and version 2 should include many enhancements.

Iíve tried iGTD, Inbox, Actiontastic, and others, and for me Thinking Rock has been the ideal option. Before that it was Kinkless.
 
Thanks, Bob, appreciate the response. I knew I could count on you for a reasonable explanation. =)
